CHURCH IN MISSION

The following quote inspired me today:

“If the church is going to continue to speak the Word as good news to a new generation with integrity, it must do so in light of the biblical foundations that shape the church. If the church is going to provide a new generation with an identity based upon the good news of the gospel, it must do so in light of the historical development of the church. If the church is going to continue to share the Word as good news to a new generation with relevance, it must do so in light of changes that continue to reshape the culture. If the church is going to continue to provide responsiveness in giving direction to its life and work, it must do so in light of the Spirit’s continued leading and teaching. Understanding the specific context in which the church finds itself is critical for all four tasks.”-Craig Van Gelder
